Last spring at the annual meeting of the Canadian Historical Association, NiCHE sponsored a big round-table panel called, “The Past and Future of Canadian Environmental History.” Seven environmental historians from across the country sat down to discuss a number of key questions concerning the development of the field of Canadian environmental history.

The panelists covered a number of different issues, including the concept of the anthropocene, the status of women in the field, trends and new directions in research, and the concerns of new scholars. (From Nature’s Past)
